About Catholic Schools

Catholic schools are a publicly funded, vibrant part of the public education system in Alberta. Catholic schools provide an environment for their students which encourages not only high academic achievement, but also personal and communal growth.


Celebrate, preserve, promote and enhance Catholic education.

The Alberta Catholic School Trustees' Association hosts a variety of world-class events. With the goal of faith-building, the ACSTA brings together the Catholic community with renowned speakers in celebration and learning.
